ECLECTICA CONTEMPORARY

With an increasing focus on African Art around the world, Eclectica Contemporary aims to present a carefully selected and focused collection of art from the continent that interrogates the issues facing us in a globalized world. The art at Eclectica often shows practices and materials familiar from art history but which push these boundaries and explore uncharted territories of representation, technique and theory.

Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Eclectica Contemporary sees itself as an African gallery with an international vision. We celebrate the diversity and depth of art making on our continent while aiming to contextualize this for a growing global market.

Our program of exhibitions shows a mix of solo shows by gallery artists alongside curated group shows. In addition, the Eclectica Contemporary exhibition space has facilities for experimental, new media and project-based works.

Charting

Eight contemporary painters will explore new directions, techniques and ideas in their medium, responding to local and global issues that have emerged in the wake of decolonization, the end of institutionalized Apartheid and the challenges and opportunities of a globalized world. The title ‘Charting’ implies a journey and making one’s way in territories that are being explored as well as the idea of concepts, artists and themes that are on the rise and coming to the fore. This, the first exhibition in a new gallery and exhibition space, has been guest curated by Andrew Lamprecht, Cape Town-based lecturer and writer.
